trainload of sheep, to feed his sheep before he loaded them. And just before Mr. Fry got away with his team another sheepman came With a large band of sheep. So Mr. Pry offered the other man some of his hay. But he said to Mr. Fry: "I fed them at Tampico with alfalfa, and they would not eat it. So I drove them down to Winchesters and bought two ton there and they left half of it again, so I think it is no use to buy any hay for them here as I do not believe they will eat it." Mr. Fry said: "I just sold two ton to the man over there and his sheep eat my hay all right." "Well, I will go over and see that man," said he, so over he went. "Did your sheep eat the hay this man sold to you?" "Yes sir, only they didn't get enough of it—they picked it up as fast as the man threw it off of the wagon," was the reply. "All right, you may bring me two ton right away." Mr. Fry went home and got the hay for the man, but no sooner did he begin to unload than the sheep piled around him and followed h...

4 A SUCCESSFUL CREAMERY. E,. 4 Juel, manager of the Stanwood Co-operative Cream ery, was a visitor Saturday last at the office of RANCH AND RANGE. Mr. Juel reports that the creamery is run ning in quite a successful manner and that the returns to the members are now very gratifying. During October 7,700 pounds of butter were manufactured, the average price re ceived for which amounted to 23% cents per pound. The farmers received net 21 cents per pound for their butter fat. The dairy interests are increasing in the Stanwood dis trict, and the quantity of milk handled at present is 30 per cent, over last year. It is one of the best sections in the state for dairying. The pay roll of the Co-operative creamery averaged up about $1,800 per month for the first two months. The history of this creamery shows how a community working in harmony can make a success of such an enter prise. A stock company was organized in the spring of 1895 and about $300 was raised. This was not a very large am...

BUZZINGS. By Mrs. Chas. Lee. If you have black or hybrid queens and wish to Italianize or to requeen with young queens, this is a good time to do it, at least we have always found it so. If you have a colony of bees that are uncommon cross re queen them, and, as a usual thing, you will be surprised at the toneing-down effect she will have upon the bees, al- though they are not her daughters. Try having a hook fastened on the back of your smoker in such a way that the smoker can be caught on the edge of the hive while not in use. It is a waste of time, besides very annoying to find your smoker when wanted, to have tumbled over and the lire nearly, if not quite out. There seems to be quite a discussion amongst the fra ternity just at present as to what material makes the best smoker fuel, some advocating saw dust, others corn cobs, small chips, old rags, burlap sacks, and now John Cray craft, of Florida, says that corn husks "cant be beat." Bee keepers living in a corn country might g...

&6 OFFIELD vs. THOMPSON & KAIN. The following is a letter from a commercial orchardist of Wawawai, Wash., bringing grave charges against a well known commission firm: Spokane, Wash., Oct. 9, 1897. Editor RANCH AND RANGE: Last May, as Thompson & Kain advertised as raisers, buyers and shippers of fruits, I wrote them and made them an offer to sell my entire crop of merchantable fruits, packed and on board boat, to be picked, packed and put on board at time and in manner Messrs. Thompson & Kain should direct or order, by an agent put on my place by said Thompson & Kain. About July 1 Mr. A. R. Butt came on as agent for Thompson & Kain, and did superintend the picking and packing. Our contract was in writing, to the effect that payments were to be made on each and every shipment within fifteen days of each shipment. Shipments were made from July Ito Sep tember 22 every day or so, as fast as the fruit ripened. Pay ments were seldom if ever made on time. Mr. Butt an...

HR. EDITOR, RATS ! "Rats in the granary, rats in the barn, rats in the chicken house, rats all over the farm." There is no pest that can equal the long-tailed rodent for malicious meanness here on Puget Sound—no, not even the heathen Chinee, for the Chi naman takes only what he can make use of, while I have had rats gnaw into my brooders and kill fifty fine broilers of a night, and they did not eat half of one. I formerly carried on a very extensive chicken business and of course used large quantities of grain and ground feed, the odor of which brought the rats from the woods and from all the neighbors' places to mine, especially during a cold snap in the winter or a very dry time, when feed was short in the pastures, for the pests will feed on clover, get fat like so many woodchucks. Then we are fairly overrun with them. They become so bold that they will carry off young chickens in the day time and attack the hens in the coops. But the worst trouble they cause me is by getting int...

IO VINELAND WEATHER. Storms of high wind, furious rain and deep snows and raging rivers, are reported from all over the west coast, and from the foot hills and plateaus of the Inland Empire, from the Palouse, the Big Bend and all the high prairies. Yet in the warm sheltered Vineland, down in Lewiston valley the weather is still mild (Nov. 20). There has been no snow, though we can see it on the distant hills all around. We have had plenty of rain and cloudy weather, but out-door work has not been stopped except for a few hours at a time. This morning we picked fresh roses and pansies in the gardens. Yet this is an unusually cold and wet autumn. We usually find rose buds in January and February. In four years the severest cold has been three and one-half degrees below zero. I could not endure the harsh climate of the East, but here have been well and strong all the time. Perhaps it will interest your readers to know that one Vinelander, Mr. C. C. Gregg, grew fine sweet potatoes that ...

SPRAYING COriPOUNDS. We publish below the various formulas for spraying or chards, as officially indorsed by the Washington State Com missioner of Horticulture. INSECTICIDES AND FUNGICIDES. Arsenical, Paris green and London purple; these two ar senicals practically take the place of all other insecticides for the biting and gnawing insects living or feeding on the ex terior of the foliage of trees and plants. London purple is not as effective as Paris green, and is apt to scald the foliage unless mixed with lime. Both these arsenicals may be used as follows: PARIS GREEN. Paris green, 1 pound; water, 160 to 200 gallons; lime, 2 to 4 pounds. First make a paste of the Paris green and lime, which should be freshly slaked, then add the water. For codlin moth and any insects which chew, as caterpillars, worms, slugs, etc. Paris green and Bordeaux mixture can be applied together with perfect safety. The action of neither is weakened, and the Paris green loses all caustic properties. LONDON...

12 A SHIPPER'S SHORTCOMINGS A notable bit of evidence of the duplicity of a farmer was brought to the attention of a representative last week by R. Campbell, of the Campbell Commission Company, who showed a car of potatoes that came from Eastern Wash ington, that were bought upon the representation that only first class stock was to be shipped. It was plain that that farmer was dishonest, for the potatoes were a very inferior, unsorted lot, of repulsive, scabby appearance. When the car was started on its way to Seattle the Campbell company made an engagement to sell same for the figure ruling for good stock, but when the buyer inspected the car he went away in disgust. It is needless to say that that farmer's name is passed along the line as being untrustworthy, and hereafter he will find it not so easy to have his statements accepted. Instances are also frequently observable in ship ment? of apples where it is the direct purpose to cheat the buyer by "facing" the boxes, putting the...

On Friday last there came up before the justice's court in Seattle the prosecution of six resturant men, owners of the "Windsor restaurant, the Chicago, the California, the Gilt Edge, the German Kitchen and the Liverpool. It came out that the restaurant proprietors, through their attorney, met Dairy Commissioner McDonald, and they made the proposition that one of their number would plead guilty, anJ jointly they would pay the fine and costs, providing the other five suits were dismissed, and they would follow strictly any reasonable regulations the dairy commissioner would stipulate. They claimed that the former dairy commissioner informed them that if they used oleo on their tables in the uncolored state, that it would not be a violation of the law. Mr. McDonald stated in reply that he did not believe that the former commissioner had any authority to thus const...
